The Celestron Kids Newtonian telescope is a great beginners’ scope, with a unique STEM learning element—the side panel detaches so young scientists can explore the telescope’s inner workings. It’s great for the classroom and young amateur astronomers alike.
When kids can understand how a telescope works, exploring the sky becomes that much more enjoyable. Simply remove the side panel and you’ll be able to show off the telescope's mirrors and demonstrate how they capture light to produce an image in the eyepiece.
When night falls, enjoy an evening of stargazing with this fully functional telescope. Explore the Moon, stars, planets. This Newtonian Reflector telescope comes with an easy to assemble tripod, which you can place on a table. You can also thread the optical tube directly onto a photographic tripod or monopod.
With your purchase, you’ll receive a free download of printable educational material about Sir Isaac Newton, the scientist who invented the Newtonian telescope, and an explanation of how light travels through the optical path. PLUS, enjoy a free Starry Night Special edition software download to teach your little one about the Universe (details on download code insert card included with your telescope).
Leave complicated star charts, imprecise planetarium apps, and computerized mounts behind. With StarSense Explorer, locating objects has never been easier, faster, or more accurate. Within minutes of setting up the telescope, you’ll be navigating the sky with confidence. Simply place your phone in the unique StarSense dock and launch the StarSense Explorer app. After aligning your phone to the telescope’s optics (a quick, 2-minute procedure), StarSense Explorer generates a list of celestial objects currently visible. Make your selection and arrows appear onscreen, guiding you as you to move the telescope. When the object is ready to view, the bullseye turns green.
Caution: Always ensure the side panel is attached to the telescope while observing to prevent unwanted light from interfering with the image. Always use with adult supervision
